Lowtech Manifesto

Wildly experimental
Sit back and observe
Hardly any tech
Very privacy aware

A rant approximating the content of this document was delivered to an audience of new media artists and activists by James Wallbank, Coordinator of Redundant Technology Initiative, at The Next 5 Minutes conference in Amsterdam in March 1999.

“Lowtech includes hardware and software. We advocate freeware and low cost software. We particularly advocate the use of low cost, open source operating systems.”

James Wallbank, 1999
